The problem with a "list all variables" page is that it's VERY easy to get
lazy about settings after that, and you end up with all of the useful or cool
stuff there and only there, with no decent inline documentation. It becomes
the Windows Registry very very quickly. :-)
An admin/advanced page, if we include one, should still be a well-built and
well-documented page, just listing less-used stuff. Developers shouldn't
have an "easy way out" of just throwing something into the advanced screen
and forgetting about it.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea,
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it." -- Thomas
